It is a question I have asked many times over the years!
Whenever I see a news story with some glowing report about how refugees financially benefit the communities in which they are placed, I suspect that all the costs to society are never calculated.
Costs like remittance dollars sent out of the US economy (a story for another day!)? Cost of interpreters for myriad obscure languages? Complete cost of educating the children? Costs associated with elderly and infirm refugees? And, the cost of crime, of courts, of prison time!
We have had a bunch of refugee crime stories lately including the Iraqi alleged terrorist found living in California, the Iraqi who shot a police officer in the head in Colorado, the Uzbek sentenced for trying to kill the prison warden, the Ethiopian alleged human rights abuser arrested in Virginia last week, and see today’s more detailed storyabout the Arizona Somalis who lied to get in to the US. (All those and 2,000 more stories are posted in my Crimes category.)
Someone with accounting and financial skills needs to put some time in to researching the costs to the US taxpayer of refugee criminals in America.
I’ve been joking about the fact that the vast majority of news stories about violent crimes report that the “man” was responsible and then go on to name the arrested man, not as Bob Jones or Fred Smith, but Mohamed A. Abdullahi or Chukwumankpam Mbegbu.
She said citizens need “secret decoder rings” when reading news stories in order to figure out where certain violent criminals came from and how they got to America (illegally? or through some legal program) because the police and the media are going to keep those facts secret unless an enterprising reporter does some serious digging.
Two more such cases came to my attention over the last few days.
That is what the LA Times is reporting, here. (Hat tip: Peter)
Surely you’ve seen the story about an animal rights activist shooting human beings a few days ago, but if you haven’t, check out the LA Times.
I only want to make a couple of points. First here is a tiny snip of the story:
Aghdam entered the country as a refugee roughly two decades ago, a family member said. In one of her videos, she said she was born in Urmia, Iran — where she and other members of her Baha’i faith face discrimination — and that her family had spent a year and a half in Turkey.
Readers need to know that Turkey has been a major processing center for refugees from the Middle East (imagine what fraud could be happening there!) for many years.
Trump Admin doesn’t process as many through Turkey
I’ve reported on the processing countries on several occasions, but it might be instructive to see that as Obama was leaving office, Turkey was one of our top processing centers, here. And, then here, a year later, Turkey has been demoted as a processing country. I don’t have the inside skinny on what happened.
The mentally ill are admissible as refugees
The other thing you need to know is that we don’t screen for mental illness in the refugee admissions process—we take many nuts!
(Based on this reporting and her age now, she was an adult when admitted to the US.)
And, when those nuts do something as violent criminals, you dear taxpayers support them for the rest of their natural lives! (Not the case this time, she spared you by killing herself!)
Ignore the refugee industry propaganda which posits that refugees don’t commit crimes, visit my ‘Crimes’ category herewith over 2,000 previous posts!
I hadn’t noticed the story until Christmas day or so when Ann Coulter posted a series of tweets about the complete absence of any description of the man who attacked a woman walking home from work. (Ann had the date of the attack wrong, but not the fact about the apparent media coverup.)
If you read Coulter’s ‘Adios America’you know that this is a recurring theme in the book. The news media (not all of it, but most of it!) will turn itself into pretzels trying to hide the facts (and the nationality) about immigration status of migrants involved in crimes, often simply referring to him as “man.” Or, LOL! if the attacker used a vehicle it becomes “truck killed…..”
When I saw that tweet I went on a hunt for the stories too, but never saw any description either (I didn’t bother watching the one TV news bit, but I should have.) I’ve noticed on several previous occasions that the text accompanying a broadcast story leaves out the key piece of information that someone has deemed politically incorrect to mention even when it was mentioned on air—that the alleged perp is an immigrant of some stripe.
Morgan Evenson was walking home in downtown Minneapolis about 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 13 when a black man got out of his car, chased her down, tackled and stabbed her repeatedly.
The feisty 26-year-old frantically fought back, kicking, scratching and screaming for help.
At some point, neighbors heard her screams and came to help. Her attacker – described as a Somali man in his early 20s, about 5-foot-7 with a slight build and wearing grey stone-washed jeans – ran away.
Evenson was left bleeding on the curb with 14 stab wounds on her arms, neck and back. Her kidney was lacerated. She was lucky to survive the attack.
It happened while she was walking home from the Apple Store, where she worked, about eight blocks away from her apartment. That’s when the man attacked her for no apparent reason. Police, who have not made any arrests in the case, are calling it a botched robbery.
Police have called the case unusual for the level of brutality just to get a woman’s purse, leading some to wonder if the assailant didn’t want more than just a purse.
The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the city’s largest newspaper, has been AWOL on the story.
The newspaper’s on-duty news editor, Maria Reeve, did not return WND’s calls Tuesday to inquire about why it went dark on such a brutal, unprovoked attack on a defenseless, unarmed woman walking home from work.
Other media, such as the Southwest Journal, have reported on the crime but left out the assailant’s full description as a Somali migrant.
Only one media outlet, local ABC News affiliate KSTP, included in its on-air coverage the fact that the victim described her assailant as Somali, but the station’s website article failed to mention that fact.
Continue here to read about other Minnesota criminal cases involving Somalis swept under the rug in Minnesota—America’s ‘canary in a coal mine’ about the advancing hijra.
Then here is our friend Deb Anderson:
“It was interesting the articles I read didn’t say anything about the police coming. Not a thing. Just sounds like the classic media template used in Europe,” Anderson told WND. “You had to get all the way through that KSTP [broadcast only] report to find out he’s Somali, and it was never mentioned in the other media outlets at all.”
That’s very disconcerting for someone who has been trying to educate Minnesotans about the pitfalls of kowtowing to the Somali community and its “civil rights” advocates at CAIR.
“It’s unofficial but Minnesota law enforcement agencies are enforcing, or at least tolerating, Shariah law. Most people don’t know it yet but the police are not here to protect the indigenous Minnesotans anymore,” Anderson said. “They have been incrementally changing their search policies and their use of force policies for years. We’re not being protected anymore. They’re protecting the Muslims, so it’s becoming increasingly like Europe. Yes, it’s here now.”
The Muslim refugee, Mohammod Rafique , is described as a man who arrived from Myanmar two years ago.
That would make him one of the 19,000 plus Rohingya refugees we have admitted from Burma (aka Myanmar) in the last ten years. See here just yesterday.
Prosecutors wanted a $50,000 bond but the judge set bail at $15,000. If he gets out, will he return to court or disappear into the woodwork of America like so many other Muslim refugees charged in a variety of assault cases in recent years?
A Nashua man is facing accusations that he had inappropriate contact with several young girls.
Mohammod Rafique is facing six charges, including two counts of felonious sexual assault. Nashua police said the incident happened in late August and involves four girls, including a 7-year-old.
“We’re alleging these offenses have had a great and substantial effect on both them and their parents,” prosecutor Don Topham said.
Rafique was described in court as a refugee from Myanmar who has lived in Nashua for two years. An interpreter was provided by phone. [Interpreters will run up his legal costs to taxpayers big time!—ed]
Authorities said the charges involve inappropriate touching and happened at some sort of gathering.
“Through the investigation, we learned that he was acquainted with one girl’s family,” Lt. Kerry Baxter said. “He had attempted to offer them money and gifts and things like that to get one or more of the girls back to his house.”
